Safe working environment
Our aim is to provide a safe and healthy working environment for all our employees.
We conduct special safety excellence training for the Metso people whose work is related to service and production. The training aims at explaining both the business and personal aspects to safety and helps in finding concrete ways to improve safety in everyday work. The target is to ensure a thorough understanding of our safety requirements and stronger employee engagement throughout the organization. In addition, our target is to provide eight hours of health and safety-related training per employee annually regardless of their position. This training consists of local and commonly required HSE trainings in a classroom or e-learning format.
During 2018, a gap analysis relating to minimum safety standards was initiated. These form the baseline for our common work procedures. The analysis is done to find out the level of compliance and the starting point for new suggested requirements within the existing standards.
We encourage all employees to discuss safety-related matters and to pay attention to potential hazards. Face-to-face safety conversations are a part of every manager’s individual targets and all employees are expected to actively report risk observations. Read more about our health and safety
